As an occupational therapist, Caitlin’s special interest in the area of child and youth mental
health brought her to Expanding Horizons Occupational Therapy. Caitlin’s experience and
interests also include working with children and youth experiencing a range of intellectual and
developmental diagnoses such as Autism and ADHD, genetic conditions, mental health
concerns, and sensory-related concerns. She also has experience working with adults and youth
in managing post-concussion syndrome.

Caitlin’s lived experience as a sibling of an individual with a congenital disability brings
additional insight, empathy, compassion to her role as a therapist, and as an advocate for her
clients. She is passionate about learning and finding new, fun, and creative ways to
continuously support her clients in achieving their goals.
